ElevArch by Freyssinet
On 26 October 2016, Freyssinet’s ElevArch® technique was trialled in a live demo in front of 120 guests from the rail sector, including Network Rail, Aktins, Arup, Arcadis, DfT and J. Murphy Group.
The A465 Saltings Viaduct on the Neath Interchange is a busy dual carriage way, bringing traffic to and from the Swansea area.
Assessment of the viaduct indicated that essential maintenance was required to replace the expansion joint located on the east side of the bridge on both the westbound and eastbound carriageways.
Freyssinet was appointed by the client, Cemex, on behalf of South Wales Trunk Road Agent (SWTRA) for the Welsh Government to design, supply and install a new expansion joint on the bridge.
During Christmas 2015, Freyssinet successfully slid a concrete bridge beneath the line of the Immingham to Ulceby railway line, just off Rosper Road in South Killingholme. The completion of these vital works is a critical part of the Highways England A160/A180 Port of Immingham Improvement Scheme in North East Lincolnshire, which will enhance road access into the port on this strategic route.
